What a fantastic afternoon! There were a few famous faces milling around my kitchen and my writing room at the beginning of March when I decided to host my publication party for Evie’s Year of Taking Chances at my newly built home ‘The Shack!’
A huge thank you to Team Mama Life Magazine, Shannon Parker, Caroline Shotton, Emma Cox, John Waterhouse, Samantha Tonge, Bella Osborne, Sharon Sant, Celebrity Chef Simon Smith, Marie Deakin, Team Book Bloggers, Team Amigos and all my friends and family who made this a truly special afternoon!
There was one guest in particular who I was especially pleased to see, the amazing Ann Sanderman, (my book Lizzie’s Christmas Escape is dedicated to Ann). Her favourite singer is the uber-talented Gary Barlow so when we arranged for the gorgeous Stu Clements (@Stuclemo) to perform his Gary Barlow tribute act in my kitchen there was no-one more surprised than Ann! After undergoing chemotherapy that very week she rocked out in my kitchen all afternoon, had the greatest day and was an afternoon she’d never forget! The fizz was flowing and a truly magnificent day was had by all.
